"The Goulburn Choir Mob is set to make history this Anzac Day as they provide the music for the first 5:30pm Evening Anzac Day Service on Rocky Hill. RSL Sub-branch organiser, Mark Collins, hopes that this will become a regular feature on Anzac Day for many years to come.
His passion is to see local young people take ownership of the service and is excited that the Goulburn Mob of the RSL Rural Commemorative Youth Choir can be involved from the start. The Choir will start singing around 5:15pm with an official short service to take place at 5:30pm as the sun sets as "In the evening we will remember them".
The song, "We Will Soldier On", written by Local Choir member, Georgia Baker, as a tribute to the role of women in wartime, will be featured by the choir as the Goulburn RSL Sub-branch encourages

I just want to start this report by saying what an honour and privilege it has been for our Choir to carry the RSL name as we sought to promote the aims and objectives of the League in this very special Centenary of Anzac year.
I also want to express our gratitude for the on-going support of Ray James in his role as Deputy Chair of the NSW RSL Youth Council and State Council Representative on the RSL Rural Commemorative Youth Choir Committee. We would also like to thank our Kangaroo March Patron, Dr Brendan Nelson, for his valuable support during the year.
Listen to an interview with the Choir's Music Director, OJ Rushton about the choir's performance in the show Through These Lines at the Mittagong Playhouse with John Cider on Highland FM
In the lead up to our first Practice+ and Info Day for the Pilot Mittagong Choir Mob, BDCU was a great support by advertising the day on their home page for all their members to see every time they logged in.
Thank you BDCU!
Another great article in the Veteran's Affairs magazine featuring the choir singing at St Andrew's Cathedral.
This Blog will grow to have many authors
We encourage the budding young writers in our choir to give us reports after events. They will be posted here along with media reports and other interesting info as our story unfolds.
